Finding out that your pet needs surgery can be a nerve wracking experience. You want to be sure your companion will remain as safe and comfortable as possible, and receive the most effective surgical care available for the best possible outcome. At Village Gate Animal Hospital & Pet Resort, we know you probably have a lot of questions and concerns about your pet’s surgery, and we’re prepared to answer them. We want to set your mind at ease, once and for all, and instill a sense of confidence that your companion will be in caring, capable hands with our surgical team. We understand that surgery isn’t something you and your pet have to deal with often, so we’ll do everything we can to make the experience as stress-free as possible for you both.

Our highly skilled veterinarians are experienced in performing a broad range of surgical services, from routine to complex, all carried out in our state of the art surgical suite, using cutting edge equipment and the most modern surgical techniques. We take every measure to ensure the wellbeing of our surgical patients at all times while in our care, and to reduce risk at every turn. We use heated surgical tables and the safest available anesthetic products. Rest assured that when it comes to pet surgery, the safety and comfort of our patients is always our top priority.

Before we ever even wheel your pet into the operating room, we will carefully screen them to make sure they are healthy enough to undergo surgery. Once we determine it’s safe to proceed, we’ll then get to work developing a customized plan for pain management, based on your pet’s unique needs and risk factors. We want to keep them as pain-free as possible while also keeping them safe. Anesthesia is carefully administered by our well trained veterinary technicians, and pain control is monitored throughout the procedure.

During surgery, the doctor will work diligently to conduct the operation as efficiently and effectively as possible for optimum results. Our team of highly skilled technicians and assistants will remain on hand at all times to assist with surgery and to closely monitor your pet’s wellbeing throughout, making sure that all of the important levels are met and maintained, such as heart rate, blood pressure and oxygen. We accomplish this through the use of cutting edge technology and the most modern monitoring equipment available.

When the surgery is complete, your pet will be relocated to our quiet, comfortable recovery area. A member of our team will reach out to you to explain how everything went and to answer any questions you may have about the procedure. We’ll also arrange a time for you to come retrieve your companion, at which point you will be advised of any aftercare instructions we may have. We want to help your pet recover as quickly and painlessly as possible once he or she returns home.

If your pet needs surgery, there’s no need to worry. When you’ve got the experienced, compassionate surgical team at Village Gate Animal Hospital & Pet Resort on your side, you can trust that all of your pet’s surgical needs will be met!
